Skip to comments.How the Dream Act transcends politics

When I was a Senate staffer more than a decade ago, Republicans hit on a tactic to advance school choice. They kept narrowing the eligibility standard to cover poorer and poorer families with children in only the most spectacularly failing schools, daring Democrats to vote against the most sympathetic possible group of students. I remember one liberal senator saying in exasperation, "Someday, you are going to make this impossible to oppose." . . .

Undoubtedly, RINO Michael Gerson will be cheering for Newt Gingrich or Jeb Bush in 2012. If I am not mistaken, he is constantly attacking Sarah Palin.
According to Wikipedia, it was RINO Gerson who came up with lines like "the soft bigotry of low expectations" and "the armies of compassion." He was a liberal then. He remains a liberal now.
His first column was "Letting Fear Rule: Nativism is a Recipe for Long Term GOP Losses."
More great advice courtesy of The Washington Post from Beltway RINOs who relentlessly pushed Juan McCain and lost Congress in 2006 and 2008. I'm so sicked and tired of these losers and their great ideas like Frum and Gerson riding high on our victories and living high on the hog at our expense.
Did he notice that school choice, or Opportunity Scholarships as they were known, were outlawed by the dems in D.C.
It’s never about education, it’s always about power.
No Dream Act. Period. Let the 2011 Congress take it up.
There should be revulsion that the Dream Act equates two years of frat parties and skipping classes with serving in the armed forces during time of war.
He is a liberal and a Palin basher, but the ‘soft bigotry of low expectations’ was a great line.
Michael Gerson pimping Romney
"Romney went on to dispute one of Kennedy's central arguments ...
Romney argued that Mormonism reinforces basic American values
Romney's speech, however, was an achievement.
Kennedy's speech remains a landmark of American rhetoric.
But Romney's deserves to be read beside it."
Michael Gerson pimping RomneyCARE
" Instead, the president chose the current complex, regulatory approach to reform,
precisely because it seemed less radical and disruptive than the other options.
It was patterned in part on health reforms in Massachusetts signed by then-Gov. Mitt Romney,
a Republican, thereby applying at least a veneer of bipartisanship.
Funny how 70 percent of Hispanics in Arizona VOTED AGAINST Juan McCain after relentlessly pushing amnesty for years ... about the same number who voted against Jan Brewer who defend SB 1070.
The '86 amnesty was an absolute failure and served only to perpetuate more illegal immigration. That, and it paid huge electoral dividends for the Democrats.
Gerson has absolutely no clue.
